Boutique and Café Open


Boutique and Café Open

Exciting changes are happening at the Barrie Public Library!  At our Downtown location, we’ve combined our Boutique and Café into one full-serve shop to help serve you better.

All Café items and used materials are available for purchase from the Café area on your left when you walk in the front door. This means you can buy your used books at the same time you buy your coffee!  It also means all of our patrons will be able to browse the used books, as our former boutique wasn’t wheelchair accessible.  It’s a win-win!

As we are tight on space, the Café/Boutique volunteers are unable to accept book donations. Please drop your donations off to staff at our delivery door located at the rear of the building off Mcdonald Street. 

For more information about book donations, please see our guidelines below.
